Product safety compliance programs under attack

How to fortify your compliance program to withstand litigation

Event Details


United States | June 29, 2021

Compliance programs used by manufacturers, importers and retailers to promote compliance with product safety obligations and reporting requirements over potential defects have been subject to increased scrutiny in civil penalty actions brought by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, as well as in product liability litigation.

Please join Norton Rose Fulbright and ESi for a discussion of how such companies can fortify a compliance program to minimize these litigation challenges.

Topics will include:

  • How government and private attorneys have asserted the inadequacy of companies' compliance programs
  • How such claims have been resolved in court and in CPSC settlements
  • Litigation strategies for cases involving allegations of inadequate compliance programs
  • Risk assessment in compliance program design
